    Heater flap motors - where to buy

    As an update to this thread, mine was making funny clicking noises from time to time so thought it was worth getting a price for the new part. TPS now want £110 for the part!!!!! The bloke on the phone also said that it had changed part number so I presume the design has been updated to prevent...

    Heater flap motors - where to buy

    Just repaired my A4 b7 cab after getting cold feet. basically no air to the footwell vents so took off glove box and you look at the image posted earlier: I ran all the different vent positions and it was the highest motor with the black linkage that wasn't moving. From what I can gather, the...

    Hi I have been looking to fit a phatbox and bluetooth handsfree kit that I already have into the wife's b7 A4 cab with a concert II+ stereo. Whilst doing this I have come across all sorts of relatively cheap products that seem to do all this with a lot less fuss such as Xcarlink, yatour and...

    RobMorris Audi A4 2.5 V6 tdi avant

    This is what I've bought: AUDI A4 B6 2001-2005 DRIVER SIDE DOOR LOCK/ MOTOR CATCH | eBay going to change it this weekend. Looks like that bolt will still come out with the spline bit. They're only about half inch long but have blue thread lock on.

    Have had the fairly common drivers door bouncing back when you go to shut it. I have removed the door lock and given it a good soak in WD40 and cleaned it and greased it up but it still doesn't spring down to the fully open position. It appears that some of the rubber coating of the latch is...

    Hi I've just had the same fault show up on my 2.5tdiQ. Is the sensor obvious/easy to find? And is it just a case of dropping the oil and removing and replacing or repositioning the sensor? Thanks Jim

    How do I unplug drivers door wiring loom from the car body??

    thanks for your answer woorlord, think I am a bit confused tho. There is no problem with the plugs, just that 1 of the wires has come out of the back of the plug. How does the repair wire work, do you just shove it into the back of the plug. will TPS know what I'm talking about? thanks
